The NHL suspended Philadelphia Flyers forward Brayden Schenn for one game for charging New Jersey Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov in the Flyers’ 3-0 loss to the Devils on Tuesday night, the league announced.
Scheen charged Volchenkov in the second period of the loss and was not given a penalty on the play. Scheen will miss Thursday night’s home game against the New York Rangers.
Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and based on his average annual salary, Schenn will forfeit $4,702.70. The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
The Flyers are 0-3-0 in the lockout-shortened campaign and it is their worst start to a season since 1995.
